      Hello esuohdla,

      Preflop: Should 3bet it bigger here, ~$0,24 at least.
      Postflop: I don't like the Check here that much. Of course it's doable but there are still some cards which we just don't want to see and what complete some GSs. I'd rather bet it smallish. :) And then reevaluate on further action. But as played well, you kinda induced them to play this way and obviously we ain't gonna fold our hand while he could easily even have worse sets there.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah the check was my mistake, didnt actually realize the flop was 3 way until it was too late. How do you feel about a check if the flop was 1v1? realistically there are only 2 draws possible, and the check at 2NL seems to make people bet with air more often than not.

      Most likely I'd still Bet there since the Check will be in long run very exploitable, neither we don't know the opponent to pick such a line.
